Taking a Hero’s Journey
This is a really useful tool to overcome obstacles on your way to your goal. It is an adaptation of Joseph’s Campbell’s tool developed in 1949 and follows a structure that we can see in many tales and films. The Hero’s Journey.
Encompassing goals, obstacles, villains and mentors, it gives us a tool to be able to cross thresholds and reach our goals. Watch the video and then use the tool to realise your dreams.
In the Hero’s Journey, the hero has a goal to reach which may be to find a princess or capture a castle or round up baddies.
If you get several pieces of paper on the floor so that you can walk the hero’s journey, you’ll have many lightbulb moments and cross the threshold that you previously couldn’t cross.
- Your goal
- Your threshold – see the video for where to place this
- List of your mentors or role models
- A list of the villains – internal or external
Follow the instructions in the video to be able to cross the threshold and complete your Hero’s Journey.
This is a brilliant tool and is very kinaesthetic when you walk it out on the floor. Perhaps think about asking someone to buddy up with you and supporting each other to resolve barriers and threshold issues so that you can reach teh goals that you have set yourself.
This is a technique I teach on my Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis and NLP Coach course. If you’d like to join a course, here’s the link for the certified NLP Practitioner course
If you find you still can’t cross your threshold, let me know and we can talk it through and start you off on this Hero’s journey.
Until next week,
Dr Bridget – keeping you travelling, in business and life
